Why your company website is not enough.

why-your-mlm-company-website-is-setting-you-up-for-failure-600x300

When we first get started in network marketing, we are given a company replicated website to promote. Typically what we do is go online and start promoting the website on social media. The problem  with replicated websites is that we are all given the same one that says the same thing. Whether we realize it or not, these websites have been seen before. Most marketers are promoting them the wrong way which is one of the reasons people are not signing up.

If you want to sign people up online, please understand that it is going to require some work and ingenuity in many cases. After all, someone did tell them that they are going to make a million dollars in six months. As soon as that didn’t happen, they became reluctant about whether “those things” really work.

Company websites don’t work for the following reasons:

  1. Everyone has them– As mentioned above, if everyone has them, they have been seen before. You need to create pages that no one has used or very few people have used. More importantly, you need to have YOUR OWN message on the website, not a generic message.
  2. Can’t capture emails- company replicated websites can not capture emails so you can follow up with prospects through auto responding messages. The relationship is built and extended through short powerful messages that are created to  educate the prospect to make a decision  to get started. This is important because most people do not make quick business decisions.
  3. Don’t provide value- When I say no value, I’m not speaking of the health and/or financial benefits. I mean providing some content that shares tips on what’s needed to build a successful business.

 

In conclusion, hopefully you have a better understanding of why company replicated websites are not enough. If you are online promoting the same company websites with the same message, then more than likely when prospects sees it, they ignore it. You have to bring something different to the table of marketing. Instead of branding themselves, marketers are branding their companies. That doesn’t make sense because their companies are already branded.

Learn how to create capture pages and apply your own unique message on them. Learn how to create copy that provides solutions to your prospects problems. In addition, generate  leads, manage and follow up with them using this app. It’s like your own personal assistant that you download to your cellphone to keep you abreast of what’s going on in your business. The best thing about it, is that it doesn’t matter what business or product you’re promoting.

If you do this, you will win online. Just posting your link is not enough because everyone has a link. What is going to distinguish you from the rest?  You’ve got to invest in yourself and business. Learn and implement internet marketing strategies so you will have the results you’re looking for. Most people don’t have the time to build offline so online is the best course of action. Don’t be like the 90% who fail online. Do what the winners do to win.

Why people hate network marketing

image

 

There are reasons why people hate network marketing. Most people believe that they have to hang out in shopping malls, passing out flyers. They think they have to beg, chase and convince friends and family to join their business. I can’t forget the dreaded home parties. Now this may work well for some people but unfortunately, it doesn’t work well for most.

The reason why it doesn’t work well for most people is because people have lives. Not to mention, we all have friends and family who are in an MLM business and not making any money. Furthermore, when we learn of the traditional activities that must be done, it doesn’t sound too appealing. This is why people hate network marketing.

In addition, people hate having to sell to strangers. Let alone making a spectacle of themselves with friends and family members. Look, people are tired and burnt out from working their jobs. In some cases, they are working two and three jobs. They have family responsibilities and about 5-6 hours of sleep, not quality sleep either.

They don’t have about five years to hopefully learn and grow to be successful in their network marketing career. It’s not because they don’t want to make the investment, it’s because they need to make things happen faster. While it is true, you are rewarded or punished for the life you lived prior to network marketing, if you knew you would be in the business now, you would have lived a different life!

This is why it is important more than ever to automate your business. If you are not leveraging automation and systems, you are likely on your way out of business.

If you are not making sales on autopilot, you don’t have a business, you have another job! The reason why you choose network marketing is to leave your job. You want to live your life on your terms. Instead of taking orders, you want to create them. The best way to make that happen is through automation. If this makes sense to you, CLICK THE LINK to learn who you can earn on automation. Even if you don’t have a business, you can still succeed.

Network Marketing Tips For Beginners

network marketing for beginners images

There are many network marketing tips for beginners. I will go over some of these tips to assist people who are just starting out. First of all, network marketing is a people business. You need people to help you succeed. It’s just that simple. It’s amazing how people say I don’t like network marketing because you need people to join. If you think about it, you need people for everything. So tip number one is you need people. If you didn’t need people, life would be a lonely existence. Now, you don’t want all people, you want the right people. You want to deal with people who have the same common interest you have which is to build an international organization.

Network marketing tip number two is to get rid of the job mentality. I can’t tell you how many people approach this industry with an employee frame of reference. It would be great to get a paycheck after one week of work. However in network marketing, you will go without a paycheck for months even years. One of the reasons why network marketing experiences a bad rap is because people bring their job mentality to free enterprise.

When you work at a job, you are used to getting a steady paycheck. You are conditioned to someone telling you what to do also. When people start a business and don’t make money right away, they call MLM a scam. They become disgruntled and go back to their jobs. For this reason, get rid of the job mentality.

Tip number three for beginners is you must hold yourself personally accountable. In order to succeed in network marketing, you must participate in your own success. There is no way you will build a business without personal action. New distributors blame their failures on their sponsors instead of themselves. While sponsors have a responsibility to assist you in business, it is ultimately your duty to get up and build. If you ask the majority of net workers what they are doing to build their business, the answer is nothing. Yet, they are the ones who say MLM is a pyramid scheme. They post negative reviews of companies that they failed in, in an effort to discredit the company and industry.

In conclusion, these are my network marketing tips for beginners. Nothing is written in stone. However, I believe these points will get new reps off to a good start. What you put into your business is what you get out of it. Network marketing is a different world. Especially when you come from the workforce. All of the emotional baggage and personal pain associated with working a 9 to 5 is tremendous. Unfortunately, these issues are transferred into this industry. As we continue to grow and develop, we will move from beginner to pro.

Network Marketing IS The Dream

dream images 1

Network marketing is a business model that has been around for decades. It’s a business for people who like helping other people. The business model offers top notch products to consumers around the world, who have a desire to improve the quality of their lives. Examples of these products are health and wellness, financial services, travel services etc. Network marketing is a solution for individuals looking for an alternative to the traditional 9 to 5.

There are uneducated people who call network marketing a pyramid scheme. To be perfectly clear, a pyramid scheme is when money is changing hands but there is no legitimate product being moved or service fulfilled. These schemes are partly what gives network marketing a bad rap. Unethical programs like these pollute our industry giving people a negative outlook on our profession.

The other part that gives network marketing a poor image is bad business people. Let’s be honest, there are bad people in every industry so network marketing is no exception. One must associate him or herself with the good people and be held personally accountable for their own success.

Some people feel that the type of product you have makes the difference in network marketing. I believe that it’s not so much about the product nor has it ever been. It’s about the dream, plain and simple. It’s also about people since people are the ones with money. Personally speaking, it’s about the dream. I dream of the people I can help effectively and the things I can do politically.

Network marketing has made it possible for the average person who doesn’t have much money to dream again. Most people have given up on their dreams. The American dream of owning a home and retiring in style is becoming an American nightmare. I see many people working past their retirement age and are afraid that they STILL will not be able to retire. Yet, the folks who are retired now have to go out and find another job just to supplement their retirement incomes. What kind of retirement is that? I believe that corporate America and the public sector are the enemies of the poor and the middle class because most well paying jobs that existed decades ago, are now in India and china. Far easterners are being paid less than half of what Americans use to earn.

In conclusion, when people wake up and join network marketing, they are choosing freedom over security which by the way, doesn’t exist anymore. The home business industry is the last chance for the common man who wants to take his financial life back from the dictatorship of corporate America and the public sector. Choose freedom or choose slavery by default. Network marketing is the dream that can take you from where you are now to where you want to be in the future.

YOU become Your Own Up Line

In network marketing, you hear many stories from distributors of how their up line sponsor got them into the business and a few months later, disappeared. This is perhaps one of the reasons why people discredit our profession and become skeptical about money making or online business opportunities. Personally speaking, I had a sponsor sign me up from a previous MLM company and he disappeared on me also so I can relate. People get into this business for different reasons. By the same token, people leave the business for different reasons.

I feel that your success in anything in life, is your responsibility not someone else. So for that reason, you have to become your own up line or your own leader. The home based business industry is a legitimate field of work. It works if you work. Perhaps that’s the problem. You won’t work because you don’t have the skill set. Furthermore, you will not commit to developing the skills that are necessary to pay the bills. In which case you can blame no one except yourself. How do you like that? When you refuse to develop the skills, you refuse to develop your paycheck. When you refuse to develop your paycheck, someone else like an employer will do that for you.

Here are some tips to becoming your own up line:

1. Read books on how network marketing is done. Go to www.amazon.com.

2. Join online business forums that focus on network marketing and ask questions.

3. Join networking groups that support the industry and network with others of the same mindset.

4. Watch you tube videos on prospecting and marketing.

5. Get rid of the lottery mentality. No one gets rich overnight. You have to pay your dues.

6. Go to http://www.risemovie.com and watch the free trailer on network marketing.

7. Last but not least, join me in business and I will assist you in getting the job done so long as you are willing to learn and take action.

 

In conclusion, network marketing is the greatest profession in the world. You have the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life. You get to use the power of leverage and create an income that is residual. So what if your up line leaves you. In every line of work, you will find irresponsible people. Your job is to not be one of the them. Will you continue to complain about the lack of up line support or will you become your own support? Seek out the help you desire. Just know that work is involved. Do not be discouraged and do not quit. If you quit, you will only be quitting on yourself.

Redraw Your Circle

There is an ole saying that goes birds of a feather flock together. In society, you are identified by the company you surround yourself with. There comes a point in time where you decide to break away from the pack to fulfill a passion that’s in your heart. This passion is foreign to your friends and family. It is foreign because they cannot understand why you are doing what you do. Sometimes it is those same individuals who bring ridicule and embarrassment because they can’t see your vision. For this reason, you have to redraw your circle.

When I say redraw your circle, I’m not talking about drawing on a sheet of paper. I’m talking about changing the company of people that you keep. When you have a passion and a vision for what you are doing it is imperative that you develop your mind to allow yourself to succeed. One of the worst feelings in the world, is to have an unsupportive spouse. Millions of people who get started in business often have someone close to them who will not or cannot see their vision. They are the doubters and complainers and always talk about why something can’t or won’t work as opposed to why something can and will work.

Your net worth is connected to your network. So if your net worth is lacking, it can be attributed to your network. There is no “I” in team and the popular acronym for TEAM is together everyone achieves more. At this time, I would like to offer some tips on redrawing your circle.

1. Join networking groups that are supportive and share the same interest you have.

2. Choose and associate yourself with a mentor who has done what you are doing.

3. Go to seminars and learn strategies that will help you move forward in your business endeavors and meet people there and exchange information with them.

4. Read books and articles on relationship building.

In conclusion, redrawing your circle is a must if you want to succeed. You must surround yourself with people who have the mindset you have because that’s what successful people do. The ideas mentioned above are not new. However, they work when you put them into practice over time. I hope you get value from this. Keep moving forward.

7 Reasons Why You Should Join Network Marketing

seven reasons why you should join images

Here I list 7 reasons why you should join network marketing. You are probably familiar with some of the reasons however, the way these ideas are presented may be new to you.

1. No Job security.

Job security is becoming obsolete in America. Thousands of people are losing their jobs every year. Our manufacturing base which was the engine of the economic world is rapidly shrinking and the number of people applying for public assistance is increasing. So how can there be job security when there are less secure jobs? Network marketing is a business model of freedom. There are no serious representatives who seek job security. We want financial independence.

2. The politicians can’t and won’t help you in the job world.

If politicians were really in office to help us, none of our American jobs would be in other countries. No offense to other nations but Americans need jobs too. What did the politicians do to help Joe average from losing his home or retirement money in 2008? Laws are being passed and decisions are made that undermine the interest and prosperity of the middle class and most of these politicians are in on it. I’m not saying all politicians are bad but the ones who are more popular have not accomplished much as far as I’m concerned. Home business owners do not seek assistance from politicians. Our motto is if it’s going to be, it’s up to me.

3. Pensions, 401ks, etc will disappear.

There is talk about nationalizing your retirement plans. How does that make you feel? Money that you worked hard for, for many years is going to lumped together with someone else’s account. Furthermore, social security is a cash grab and will also disappear. In my opinion, nationalization leads to confiscation. So in essence, your pension and other paper investments are no longer yours once nationalization takes place. You do not control your paper investments, wall street does. With network marketing, you keep what you earn, and what you earn, you control.

4. No income ceiling.

In network Marketing, you determine how much money you want to make not someone else. You can earn as much as top CEOs earn within a year. You get paid for results, not time. There is no need to ask anyone for a raise or an increase. I work with a guy who earns a high five figure salary per month and completed training with people who earn six figure per month salaries. I am thoroughly convinced that when it comes to making money sky is the limit.

5. You get to work with who you want.

Working with difficult people is not impossible. In this profession, you do get to choose your business partners however, working with difficult people is not always avoidable. A common statement that prospects have is “you need people to join your business and I don’t want a business like that”. The reality is that you need people for everything not just a business. Besides, people are the only ones who have money. So yes, unlike a job, you do get to work with people of your liking, just know that the person you like may turn into one that you don’t like as much.

6. No boss.

What more can I say? In network Marketing, you do not have bosses. You have coaches. Their role is not to make your life a living hell. Their responsibility is to help you make money. How many bosses do you know want to help you make money?

7. Time.

Having a home business allows you to control your time whereas a job controls your time for you. You report to work and perform the duties and hours assigned. As a home business professional, you make your own schedule and are not bound to a time clock.

In closing, there are many reasons why you should join a network marketing organization. Do not let fear or any pre-conceived ideas stop you from moving forward. Educate yourself on the industry by reading books and information from the direct selling association. Do not listen to people who failed. Listen to people who succeeded. The only limits are the ones you put on your mind.

P.S. Look what’s happening in Greece. It’s going to happen everywhere. Nation after nation is experiencing financial default. We in the US, have well over 18 trillion dollars in debt! That’s not even counting the unfunded liabilities which are over 24o trillion dollars! Who do you think is going to pay for it? Certainly not the banks or corporations who are responsible for this mess. We and our children are going to pay for it. I hope you realize how serious the trouble we are in. You MUST be personally responsible for your own financial affairs. turning money over to a financial institution is not responsible. It is being careless and besides that, you are not in control it. This article is not written to scare you. It is written to educate you. You can go do your own research as it is public information.
